    Hi @emg5 - Welcome to this great community, & thank you for joining, Emma. How have you been managing over recent months, & has it slowed down the process of looking at ASD in your eldest child?

    Thank you :)
    Yes it has, we had our appointment in January with paediatrician and were waiting on a school observation then we should have got the diagnosis. However due to lockdown we're now in a holding position as we still need the school observation before they can proceed.

    Hi @emg5 - I hope the paediatrician was helpful, & hope it won't be too long until the school observation. If your child is on the pathway to getting a diagnosis, just to let you know Scope can give parents great support with their 'Navigate' programme. Here's the link so you can have a look: https://www.scope.org.uk/family-services/navigate/   Hope this may help. :)

    Thank you, I have just started the navigate programme, had my first chat today. They were the ones to point me in the direction of this community :)
